We love
our work!

What's the secret behind so many returning guests? No secret: we just have fun doing what we do. And we do it with passion!

Since 2008 we provide unforgettable cycling tours, holidays and top-notch bicycle hire

Many organizations offer - since decades - trips to Italian destinations. So why another player? Well, we believe a new player makes sense if it does something new. And what we offer is actually a totally new concept:

Being local, wherever. But also being international, locally.

We've put together the best of what local and international mean to our guests. We're local thanks to the network of bike centers in Italy, we're international because our local staff is trained intensively and constantly in order to provide only the best standard and the same quality regardless the region. Quality work, personal service, deep knowledge of our land have been some of the most relevant success keys since company's inception, and are now its - well recognized - signature.

Italy-Cycling is not new. Is instead the Italian branch of the head company based in Sardinia and called SardiniaCycling. We’re not afraid to say that we became - through hard work and passion - a leading cycling tour company in Italy. Since 2008 we specialize in arranging unforgettable cycling tours, holidays and bicycle rental and we work with cyclists from around the world in our paradise region.

Since 2014 we're Canyon Experience Partner

We work with Canyon in order to provide our guests with the best bike rental service and enhance their riding experience while they visit our beautiful country. In addition to renting bikes from Canyon we make joining the Canyon family worry free by providing fitting services and allowing customers to see and test many of Canyon's models. We also have a range of Canyon accessories and gear.

Sardinia is lovely, so why working outside?

Two reasons. First, Italy as a whole means multiplying the fun; second, and main reason, is that we’ve been continuously and warmly asked to go Nationwide. By you! Yes, countless trips have ended with a question:

"Can you arrange this level of service in all the regions in Italy?"

We’ve always wanted to say yes. Now we’re happy we can say yes!

Meet our team

Simona Solla

Partner and founder, financial manager

Road cyclist, guide from Sardinia, Italy

You'll meet her often during our biking tours or events, but her main role is that of financial manager. In these shoes, she saw SardiniaCycling moving from its first base – her backyard – and opening new offices around the island. She's an outstanding reference for our team, an excellent cyclist. And while she makes ends meet, she distributes smiles and a very positive attitude.

Giovanni Lamieri

Partner, marketing strategies

Road and mountain bike rider, guide from Sardinia, Italy

Partner and founder with a degree in political science and a passion for economics and sociology. He has designed the company’s marketing strategies through the years. He’s also designed its outstanding cycle tours. A mountain bike racer in the past, Giovanni has a passion for cycling on the whole. He loves talking about Italy, its traditions, economic and social matters during tours. If you want to stop him from talking, just try to out-cycle him! A challenge? Just try it!

John Curtis Sims

Bike fleet manager

Fixie rider, Bike mechanic from Los Angeles, USA

John started riding bikes during the fixed gear boom of the early 2000's as it afforded a fun, ethical and economical means of commuting. Soon riding fixed grew into a life changing passion that included riding as far as he could, hill climbs, criterium racing and becoming a bicycle mechanic. After nearly 9 years working in Munich as a mechanic John decided to try and live in paradise here in Sardinia.

Simone Ottino

Italy-Cycling Sicily Manager

Road cyclist, Area manager for Sicily, from Valle d'Aosta, Italy

He has a great knowledge of Sicilian roads. You might think it's because he's from Sicily. Well he's not: he moved to the most southern Italian region coming from the most northern: Valle d'Aosta. This is great if you'd like to test yourself in this challenging work: Simone is friendly and cheerful as a Sicilian can be and at the same time he's precise like a Swiss watch!
